Brad attained a bachelor’s and master’s in geography. He was a PBS and National Geographic kid growing up, and he loved documentaries.  He went to Texas A&M in 1989 to get my Ph.D. in geography, thinking that he would be a geography professor and have a cushy lifestyle and maybe become a documentary filmmaker. When Brad got there, he was already burned out on it. The geography professors thought what they were doing was important, but it’s not important, it’s just interesting.

As a kid,  Brad loved watching the news on television. He thought it would be neat to do what (an anchor) does, without knowing what he does, but he wasn’t one of those kids who always wanted to this. Brad wanted to be an astronaut or an astronomer or a soil scientist. He thought, why don’t I just get into the television business and try to start making documentaries that way?
